I had this loss of WAN connectivity issue and it was quite annoying. Hopefully this update fixes that! So far so good, time will tell.

There is a problem with the download link. The link here here at MUD takes you to the Apple page but clicking on the download link on the Apple support page does nothing. It is a broken link. What is going on?

Grandpa John,

In this case, our listing is mostly informational. You can install this update through your AirPort Utility.

Sorry for any confusion. I've created an additional note at the top of the listings to alert other users of this detail.

Actually, even though it says that it will install in all Base Stations that have "n" protocol, it does not! Apple is really messed up on this one. Contrary to the info from Apple it is only for the new "ac" compatible AEBS units released yesterday.

It says here v 7.7.1 but the text here and picture here says firmware 7.6.3. My "extreme" is at 7.6.3 now and won't update to anything higher !!! ???

The person who wrote the description completely butchered it - the linked article says: "This update is for AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule base stations with 802.11ac" meaning it is only for the new Airport Extreme Basestation and Express that has been released at WWDC. I don't know why the maintainer of the description didn't put the correct information - and there is no way to report it via an obvious link on the page.

But I hope they will bring the update for the existing Airport Extreme devices at all and soon as possible, because it is true that this error exists:
„Resolves a rare issue that may cause the hard drive in AirPort Time Capsule or a hard drive connected via USB to become unresponsive.“

@Schwity

The error could be a bug that only effects the latest Airport Extreme but with that being said, the USB connector has never been all that good in my experience especially when transferring large amounts of data over the network.

The firmware update doesn't require 10.7. I'm on 10.6.8, launched Airport Utility and was able to download and install the firmware updates through it just fine.

Fixed a bug that would allow me to access my Export Extreme external hard drive from the side bar.

Not only did it install smoothly and work perfectly afterwards, it enabled DiskUtility to repair a badly corrupted Time Machine backup that I hadn't been able to repair before.

This is a good upgrade.

Version 7.6.3 broke the IPv6 tunnel on my Airport Extreme "2nd Generation." Downgrading back to 7.6.1 fixed it.

Has this version been withdrawn?? When you go to Apple's website there is no way to download the file.

I wonder what happened to 7.6.2 -- we skipped that version.
